Cockpit voice recorder recovered from EgyptAir wreckage

Egypt's investigation committee says the cockpit voice recorder of the doomed EgyptAir plane has been found and pulled out of the Mediterranean Sea.

The committee says the so-called black box has been damage, but that the vessel searching for the wreckage has managed to safely pull the "memory unit which is the most important in the recorder."

Thursday's announcement comes a day after the committee said that the vessel John Lethbridge, which was contracted by the government to join the search for the plane debris and flight recorders, has spotted and obtained images from the wreckage of the EgyptAir plane. 

The wreckage was found between the Greek Island of Crete and the Egyptian Coast.

EgyptAir flight 804 disappeared from radar, and crashed into the Mediterranean Sea on May 19.

All 66 people onboard were killed.

They were flying from Paris to Cairo.

While an official cause of the crash has not been announced, officials have long suspected terrorism.
